George,
Removal is slow and requires removal of the bottom plate, agitator cavity, the hose connection, and the hood. I can sne a few pictures if you get stumped.

How to replace eureka model 4388 belt


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Changing the belts in your unit is easier than you think. To do so, you will need a phillips head screwdriver. First, start by unplugging your vacuum as a safety measurement. Using the lever in the bottom of your unit, recline your upright until it lays flat. Unscrew all 4 screws from the floor base cover and remove the cover to expose the roller brush and belts of your unit.

Carefully, remove the roller brush by using your hands, make sure to hold on to the side of the roller brush that has the belt so it does not pop out and hit you. Once the roller brush is removed, gently take the belt off the metal spool, and replace with the new belt.

We have a very helpful tutorial in our webpage that can assist you in replacing the belts on your unit:

How do you replace the drive/neutral lever (foot pedal) if it falls off? (The yellow and gray lever that you step on to put it into drive or neutral.) Not sure what happened but it just fell off. Now I...


The pedal assembly must be replaced,( part # 558401S), as it has a gear pressed to it which has come loose. The handle, switch plate, and upper motor cover must be removed first. To remove the plastic switch plate, remove it's screws and insert a flat screwdriver into the rectangular slot in it to pop it of. Four screws hold the motor cover in place. Next the switch button must be removed. The Techdrive assembly can be removed by removing the three screws on the bottom. Drop the drive down, and unhook it's belt from the gear on the end of the armature shaft. The pedal assembly can be removed by removing the remaining screw from the bottom of the drive unit. The N/D pedal has two parts - the pedal itself, and the shift cam. Observe carefully how these units fit together. After installing the new pedal and replacing the screw and washer to secure it, re-install the drive unit. The shift must be in the Drive position to install it, and replace the belt. Be sure to line up the arm on the drive unit so that it engages the slot at the base of the handle pivot and re-install the other items

My hoover model #u6436-900 brush will not spin. I have changed both belts and still nothing. I even checked to make sure they were the right sizes.


Greetings,

It maybe that the belts were not installed properly, or that the roller brush might be as well. Here's a good video that explains the proper procedure of how to replace the belts on your vacuum cleaner, as well as basic maintenance on your Hoover:

No site available for that, but the height adjustment on this machine only works when you let the handle down.

Hello tmc68cam. Most vacuums have a belt driving the rollers/brushes. Unplug unit and remove the housing screws to view internaly. If a broken belt note your model# and search for a local applance repair shop for a replacement. IF not I will need Mgfr.,model & serial# to research to futher assist in the repair. Good Luck.

Upright lock broken

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the brand name and the model # it sounds to me that you have a broken handle release if that is what you are referring to as “Upright Lock Broken” – the handle release lever keeps the hand staying up and in the upright position. So include @ least the brand name and or the model # and I can try to further assist you. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
